In November 1995, Chanelle Pickett, an African-American transsexual woman, was strangled to death at age 23. At her service, Chanelle's twin sister, Gabrielle, also a transsexual woman, remembered her as a vibrant person, "full of life... high-spirited... with many goals."

Chanelle Pickett's murder illustrates why we fought so hard to stay in ENDA. When we say having gender identity language as part of ENDA is a life or death situation, we ain't kidding. Chanelle's murder graphically illustrates the connections between violence and pervasive employment discrimination.

Chanelle met Palmer at Playland, Bostonís oldest gay bar and a downtown Boston hangout popular with trans girls. According to Chanelleís twin sister Gabrielle, Chanelle thought Palmer was genuinely interested in having a relationship with her. On Sunday evening, November 19, the three of them indulged in some crack cocaine together. When Palmer was unable to convince Gabrielle to join them in a threesome, he took Chanelle to his apartment. Later that night Palmerís roommates heard loud noises coming from his room and knocked on the door to ask if everything was OK, but he said he had the situation under control. The next day, at the advice of his lawyer, Palmer reported Chanelleís death to the police, and was eventually charged with first-degree murder.

Her murderer only got 2 years...I guess a murderer isn't a murderer if the victim happens to be transgendered..

Chanelle's twin sister Gabrielle is said to have been murdered in 2003

Duanna Johnson was beat by members of Memphis Police Dept..She filled a complain and was going to file a lawsuit until someone killed her
